The GeenEenTwee is one of my 'machines' that prevents a mobile phone from turning on.
I noticed that my phone turns on and calls the emergency number when I put it turned off in my pocket. Removing the battery is not an option: I don't want to lose it or damage it.
The name 'GeenEenTwee' is a pun on the Dutch emergency number 112, which is spelled out as 'Een een twee'. An equivalent English name would be 'NighOneOne'.
